Students learning English and looking for qualifications for academic or professional goals often choose to take a Cambridge English exam, such as First (FCE), Advanced (CAE), or Proficiency (CPE). These tests are available to take at various centers all over the globe. Our San Diego school is also a registered test center, administering the Cambridge Test four times a year.
The Cambridge exams are known for their rigor and reliability which is why universities and businesses trust a student's results. We offer Cambridge Exam preparation at seven of our schools for a reason. We know our English students want to be prepared to meet their academic and professional goals.
So, why do non-native English-speaking students choose to take these exams?
